Arunachal: 70 birds species spotted during Himalayan birds count

Guwahati: At least 70 different bird species were counted during the Himalayan Bird Count in Arunachal Pradesh.

From westernmost Ladakh to easternmost Arunachal Pradesh, the Himalayan Bird Count (HBC) was held for the first time with the goal of celebrating the extraordinary bird diversity and drawing attention to the Himalayas’ threatened habitats.

Bird Count India, Bird Conservation Nepal, and Bhutan’s Royal Society for Protection of Nature organised the event to bring the Himalayan birding community together for a common good.

The Arunachal Pradesh Birding Club, along with the rest of the Himalayan states, participated in the event, which was held at Ziro in Lower Subansiri district and organised in partnership with Apatani Youth Association, Ngunu Ziro, and Ziro Birding Club.

The Himalayan Bird Count began on May 14 at scenic Siikhe Lake, a wintering ground for migrating waterbirds and ended on May 15 at Pange camp of Tale Wildlife Sanctuary, official said.

Despite the constant rain, the teams lead by local birders Bamin Chada and Millo Tako were able to count 70 different species in Tale Wildlife Sanctuary’s Siikhe lake and Pange camp.

Gadwall, Sikkim treecreeper, Mrs Goulds Sunbird, Sultan Tit, Blue fronted Robin, and Mountain Tailorbird were among the significant species found at the event.

The Hapoli Forest Division and the state Information and Public Relations Department supported the event, officials added.
